Welcome to STS: Tampa Bay's Premier Lacrosse Program

Our Mission:
South Tampa Sticks Youth Lacrosse League, Inc. is dedicated to promoting and honoring the amateur sport of Lacrosse among the youth of Tampa Bay for the purpose of developing a love of the game through positive coaching, community among players, parents, coaches and officials, teaching life lessons beyond the playing field, recognition of all players, and, during regular season at the youth level, participation regardless of ability, talent or skill. 

STS is an I.R.C. §501(c)(3) not for profit corporation.

Our Programs:
STS sponsors youth (boys and girls), middle-school (boys and girls) and high school club (boys) lacrosse teams.  We currently serve approximately 400 children in our programs.  Our teams participate in the  Florida Gulf Coast Lacrosse League and we are affiliated with the Florida Gulf Coast Chapter of US Lacrosse, the national governing body for the sport of lacrosse.  All players during our regular and travel season programs are required to be members of US Lacrosse.

General Registration Information: 
Lacrosse is traditionally a spring sport and our seasons generally run from mid-January to the beginning of May, with practices starting at the beginning to mid-January of each year.  Registration for our regular season programs normally opens in early December preceding the start of each season, and all of our registration is handled on-line through this website.  Registration for our regular season will normally close by mid-February of each year. 

We also sponsor the Tampa Tarpons travel program for boys advanced players (10U, 12U, 14U and High School) and the Tampa Tropics girls advanced players (Middle School and High School) during the May/June and October/November travel season. Tryouts will be announced on the website.. 

We also hold instructional fall programs each year.  Those will be announced on this website in mid-August of each year, when registration will open on-line for those events.  Registration for fall events will normally close by October 15th.  

During periods when registration for our events is not open, you will not be able to register for our programs.  If you would like to be informed of our programs and registration periods, please provide us your information and request through the Feedback link on the side menu of this page.  Thank you.

Girls HS Elite Fall Training

The 3rd Annual HS Elite Fall Training program will begin October 13th (athletic evaluations) and will run every Tuesday and Thursday (training sessions) until winter break. We will take a one week hiatus Thanksgiving week.


Players will be divided up into two groups for training. The first group will spend 7:00-8:00PM training at Tampa Sports Academy, while the second group trains at Anderson Elementary. The groups will then switch locations from 8:00-9:00PM. Players are responsible for their own rides between the facilities which are located three blocks away from each other.


Saturday, October 13th will be holding athletic evaluations at Tampa Sports Academy. This will serve as our baseline for each athlete throughout the program and is required for every player. We will divide players into groups of 4-6 for hour long testing. If you have a specific time restriction please email .
